My dear friend Paola is hosting a swap on Splitcoast Stampers that features original stamps by Mo Manning. Imagine my delight when my best bud, Carol, sent me a Mo Manning stamp and sentiment set for my birthday last February! Once I realized that I had a Mo Manning stamp I promptly joined Paola's swap.
I apologize in advance for the quality of the photos, definitely not my best work. But I did try a new (for me) type of card style for this...not sure what it's called, but I trolled through the samples in the "Resources" section of SCS and found this type. I thought it really highlighted the adorable image.
Isn't she just the cutest little girl? I used the last of my "Mellon Mambo" CS from SU for the base. The flowered DP is really pretty with bright pink and orange flowers accented with copper. I just love it.
See the copper dragonfly brad to the side of the scalloped oval? That holds the flap closed.
The image is colored with Spectrum Noir markers, using chalk to accent the background.
Here is where the apology comes in, the picture is out of focus, but the sentiment that comes with the set says "for my special bud". And that is just who Carol and Sweet P are to me - my Special Buds!
Thank you Carol for such a sweet and thoughtful gift! And Sweet P, thank you for arranging such a great swap. Having Mo Manning herself participate in the discussions and games is brilliant! We are so lucky that you could make it happen. Thank you!
